for the surviving soldiers and sailors of

ported by an argument that only a few
thousand old veterans survived to claim

roconls of tlio husiiicss of the pension
bureau, that the number of beneficiar
ies f the law, and consequent money
expenditure, were greatly under esti
mated. The number of applications for
pensions under the act up to the pres
ent time exceeds 20,000, and the aver
ago number of new cases received daily
is 170. About twenty per cent, of the
